to focus on climate change. as the obama administration done enough of climate change? >> none of us have done enough. governors are no different than members of congress. we come from different regions of the country. my comment about climate change was more about what some of the governors are doing in the northeast and along the coast that do not necessarily half fossil fuel resources. >> we're having a little bit of a signal problem. we're going to have to fix that and come back to you in a couple of minutes. we apologize. let me go to your point about environmental issues and global warning. it was a huge issue in the campaign, something the president promised to do more in 2013 or 2014. >> we have not seen a lot of action. there are a couple of these issues on the liberal wish list that i feel like the obama administration has not quite in gauge on. whether it is gun-control or immigration reform. there are these issues that the end of lustration has not quite in gauge on. -- that the administration has not quite engaged on. >> it was likely a very strategic decision why some of the

barack obama's success, john boehner's success, came in hume beginnings, but neither one of us are doing us a favor. neither one of them are deserving of hero worship in a country falling apart. >> i didn't think we should be hero worshipping the president, what i said he's an admirable man that did great things. >> sure, absolutely. >> in this country. i don't agree with his agenda. >> you argue that we haven't lost, to dages point we have it in us, but we haven't shown it? >> the lmakers in washington don't, they're a bunch of gutless weasels who don't-- >> that language there. >> furthermore it's not productive language. well, they're not productive, and criticizing me for calling them gutless when that's exactly what they are. >> i'm trying to draw a distinction between-- >> come on. the gutle weasels on the one hand and not doing a good enough job on the other nd, let's cheer them on and say we honor your service, now, do a better job. >> yeah i got cheered when i didn'tnloadhe dishwasher when i was a kid instead sent to the corner and sit there r the night. >> did anybody want to b
we're at. that's no matter what president obama says, about whether or not he's going to play that game or not. republicans believe 70% of the country is with him on a debt ceiling increase and they're happy to have that fight. so you really are, the possibility ultimately of us going off the cliff is very high. because i think both parties are happy to let it happen. and have a new fight in january for different political reasons. >> ed, we saw and heard from tennessee senator bob corker say he is okay with raising tax rates. but at the end of the day, it only matters what john boehner can get the house republicans to accept. last week the speaker indicated he might be okay with raising rates, he backtracked a few hours later. what's the appetite right now for raising those rates? is that something that's going to be an easier sell for john boehner than a lot of folks think? >> i don't necessarily think so. i think until we see guys like say jason chafitz of utah or tim scott of south carolina start speaking out about the possibility of extending taxes for the middle class an
is the country changed since the original "wealth and poverty" came out in the 1980s click >> it hasn't changed at all. we've got a new carter in office and president obama. most of the themes of "wealth and poverty" that sprung from the awful doldrums of the u.s. economy under jimmy carter apply stronger, more strongly today. >> house so click >> obama is the same kind of antibusiness president and insight president. same kind of managerial, interfering, strangling, surprising president jimmy carter was. >> you writing here about president obama. i want to get to the right page so i can quote it correctly, sir. you write under the obama administration that the u.s. had a morbid subversion of the infrastructures of its economy. the public sector has become a manipulative forest, aggressively intervening in the venture and financial sectors with guarantees and subventions that attract talent and debunking. >> the worst of this is the korean cast of the obama administration. the epa now has gained control over everything. see so to have been deemed a pollution, dangerous to the environment in co2
response? >> this is a total betrayal for the people who voted for obama. it's what a lot of people have been worried about. people who make $100 million a year salary, 80 of them in the country pay the same rate as someone who makes $40,000. there should be more tax rates. secondly, raising the medicare age, it's a terrible thing to do. it doesn't save money, it costs money. for people who don't have office jobs like we do, it's a death sentence for them. this is awful. obama won by 5 million votes. 3 million vote margin for bush in 2008. a margin of one in 2000 where he lost the popular vote and the republicans are saying the man has a mandate. we must give him what he wants. i'm sorry, he has a mandate, do what it is. people have been calling on the phone and writing saying stand firm or we'll put other people in next time around. >> we were talking about this before. i wonder, is there a way of looking at this where it's part of the political process, part of the negotiating process where this gets leaked, put out there and it may not be the white house's intent? >> i certainly hope
the house. than last year. there is one tree dedicated just to the obama family dog, bo. of course 100 pound gingerbread hse has working chan dell leers. with the country in budget cris and many in the northeast not able to get a christmas tree this year thanks to sandy, you would think they would tone it down a little bit. that's what i think. we want tonow what you think. does the white house need 54 christmas trees? log on to gerriwillicom and vote the right-hand side of the screen. i will announce the results at end of the show. with all the talk about the white house christmas tree and rockefeller christmas tree you would think they're the biggest and brightest around but they are not. here are the top five tallest christmas trees in the country. number five, the mayor's christmas tree in kansas city, missouri. 100 foot tall tree in the city. not bought but grown by the mayor himself way to go. number four, the christmas tree at the grove in los angeles. they mayot have a white christmas but they certainly have the spirit thanks to 110 foot white fir adorned with 10,000 lights and 15,0
shows it making a u-turn to threaten the fain northern island of luzon. in this country, insurance giant a.i.g. says it will suffer a $1.3 billion loss in the wake of super storm sandy. president obama is asking $6gress for $60 billion in ederal aid for states hit hard by the storm. here's john bentley. nt reporter: more than a month after hurricane sandy slammed snto long island, workers are fill digging out from the damage. >> i'm here to coordinate the workers so they successfully clean up all the debris. >> reporter: angela bosco is the manager of this program in hauppauge, new york. out of work since march she got thatjob because of a government grant that only hires those who ire unemployed. d i never would imagine it riuld take a hurricane to bring me to a county position. it was like a blessing, actually. >> reporter: with tons of debris still left to clean up from hurricane sandy, the state themployment arrest almost 9%, this program hopes to solve two problems at once-- getting all of this cleaned up, getting people back to work. the super storm leveled businesses across new y
to the job by president barack obama. now, the fcc tried to pull this same stunt chairman back in the second term of george w. bush, but at hearings held around the country an angry public fought back. >> we told you a year ago when you came to seattle that media consolidation is a patently bad idea. no "ifs," "ands," or "buts" about it. so with all due respect i ask you, what part of that didn't you understand? >> i'm a republican and i'm a capitalist, but some areas of our private sector must be regulated. freedom of information is too important, we must be oactive in protecting that fundamental freedom. >> if the fcc is here wanting to know if chicago's residents are being wewell served, the answers no. if local talent is being covered, the answer is no. if community issues are being treated sensitively, the answer is no. if minority groups are getting the coverage and input that they need, the answer is no. the answer is no. >> if you will not stand up for we the people, then i have news for you. we the people are standing up for ourselves. this is our media, and we are taking it back. >
%. my next guest says the obama administration is punishing job producers and subsidizing a withdrawal from the work force. joining us now, one of the country's most houghtfl, provocative political and economic thinkers, author george gilder who wrote the best seller, wealth and poverty, and a seminal work in it is great to have you with us. some people upon closer inspection, it isot good news anand people are leaving the wok force. >> it sure isn't. we are paying people to leave the workforce. some $1 trillion offpaments of various kinds to keep people from working and to break up their families and to demoralize their earnest. it is -- it ignores the elephant in the room which is a massive departure of the prime age man from the work force. it is accelerating today. and part of tis is being subsidized by the government through record disability payments. lou: disability aymts from social security administration, taking that a side when one looks at food stamps and medicaid alone, you can add other incentives as well and support programs, but we ae looking at the prospect of having o
dream. president obama is not using a force of government to coerce the power of federal government to compel not just me and you but every single american in this country to fund his dream. it is not the purpose of the american government. >> maybe what i can tell you is this, if somehow you decide business is no longer profitable you decide to sell the company would you make a promise on the show i want to you run for congress. you make more sense than a lot of the folks making the decisions. i hope people will pay attention to you in business. >> i will that if you make me a promise. the role of government in america is split between federal and state and local for that matter. with congress failing, record low approval with our senate failing at record low approval with the president not representing about 50 percent of the country with the supreme court failing it's primary duties to uphold the constitution it is time for our governors to step into their rightful role and defend citizens and the constitution. >> i totally agree. i hope that that is where the power shift will be
.s. and other countries. explain. guest: this is a longstanding concern and one reason why the obama administration has said they're not interested in sending sophisticated weapons and to syria. the organization referred to in the article is considered one of the most effective fighting groups on the ground. many of the members are seasoned fighters from the i wrapped insurgency. there also -- iraq insurgency. while they may be somewhat smaller raley numbers, they're far more effective on the ground and it is a growing cause for concern in the situation in syria continues to deteriorate. the u.s. has decided or looks like they will designate the front as a terrorist organization. in that way, that may put some controls on the funding going into this organization and isolated from the other rebel groups on the ground. fact of the matter is in an environment as volatile as the one in syria, without a major presence on the ground, it's quite difficult to deal with an organization like this one. host: this photograph gives you just one neighborhood back in may in damascus with the broade
't think it's going to mean much for his legacy other than his he's presided over the country in the time of big social change. >> are you saying because the vice president came out for this first on "meet the press"? >> well that's part of it. although the obama administration says that he was planning to come out for gay marriage anyway. but he has changed his thinking over time and he had that very big press conference in late 2010 where he first said that his thinking was evolving. but president obama is you know, a microcosm in a way of the whole country in that his thinking was evolving. >> robert, you wanted to say? >> thomas, let me say for the record i think it's been shameful that the president has not been out in front on this issue. he could have been a transformational on this. >> shameful? are you kidding me? when mitt romney would take away all the rights and you're going to say the president has been shameful? >> okay, let's go there. if you -- >> i don't know if we can go there. i have to get to the must-reads. >> you can't throw that out there. if we're going to put mitt
that his thinking was evolving. but president obama is you know, a microcosm in a way of the whole country in that his thinking was evolving. >> robert, you wanted to say? >> thomas, let me say for the record i think it's been shameful that the president has not been out in front on this issue. he could have been a transformational on this. >> shameful? are you kidding me? when mitt romney would take away all the rights and you're going to say the president has been shameful? >> okay, let's go there. if you -- >> i don't know if we can go there. i have to get to the must-reads. >> you can't throw that out there. if we're going to put mitt romney in the same sentence, fine. shameful as well. both of them are shameful when it comes to this issue. >> mitt romney pitfully shameful. there's not even a comparison, apples and oranges on what they're going for. >> you said shameful. the president is coming out for marriage equality. you would say is shameful? the president coming out over the summer. then what's shameful? what has the president done that's shameful? >> let me repeat whey just said
this week and said who is barack obama and what drives him? it's not a big mystery at this point. >> the media seem to have no problems supporting the idea of putting higher taxes on higher wage earningers in this country and take a look at this from the california teachers union. >> and ordinary people wondered why rich people needed so much money, the 1% said, don't worry, this is good for you, too. because it will trickle down from us to you. and some day, you'll be rich and then the rules we made for us will be your rules, too. >> and that's ed asner, the actor, voicing that production. what's been the media reaction, jim? >> not much. part of it is i'd be hard pressed on a family channel to describe what we just saw there. you have to look, rewind it and look closely and appear to be urinating on ordinary americans which is kind of gross. >> jon: the rich on the poor. >> and if rush limbaugh put that video on his channel, there would have been more explosion. >> jon: this from the teachers union from the most populous state. >> but it's california after all and people are us
of people don't say is, it could be damaging to president obama. he wants to begin his second term, more forward looking and not lost in a sea of economic fear in the country, and people would blame him for, you know, taking away unemployment benefits, and letting taxes go up on everybody. >> chris: payroll taxes. >> right, both sides here have strong incentive to make a deal. not to mention they want to get out of town for christmas. >> chris: not to mention! bill, given all of that... you were one of the early people who said, republicans, i guess, thought we'd remind those who may have missed it... republicans don't want to be fighting over tax increases or millionaires. what is the smart play for republicans at this point and how do they get this -- because, the bit about taxes, how do they get the debate back to their issues, spending and entitlements. >> they'll do it next year, they'll pass in the house of representatives an extension of all the bush tax cuts. >> chris: before the end of the year. >> yes. and they'll pass, perhaps, the second piece of legislation, as a fall back i
competitiveness to education. the new number one in most cases, a scandinavian country. what is the secret sauce? we'll dig into it. >>> but first here's my take. as we debate whether the two parties can ever come together and get things done, here's something president obama could probably do by himself that would be a single accomplish money of the his presidency. end the war on tar rohr. for the first time since 9/11 an official has raised the prospect. johnson said in a speech to the oxford last week as the battle against al qaeda continues, there will be come a tipping point at which so many of the leaders and operatives of al qaeda and its affiliates have been killed or captured such that as al qaeda as wi know it has been effectively destroyed. at that point, he says, our efforts should no longer be considered an armed conflict. you might not realize it, but we're still living in a state of war. this is the longest since the civil war, world war i, world war ii. it grants the president and federal government extraordinary authorities, effectively extends civil liberties for anyone the gov
this region that is so, so -- this country that is so critical for the whole region. but i do think, though, that chemical weapons would be sort of -- that -- i think for the obama administration, that's a line that they would have trouble defending their passivity so far if assad crossed. that's a hard one. it's hard for me to imagine them not doing anything. >> but given that they haven't really done very much over the past 21 months, and they haven't done very much at all, it's not implausible that they would not do the declarative thing of invading or stopping the use of chemical weapons. it's very little solace that now they are being bombed with chemical weapons, president obama will do something on their behalf. and it's also the understanding that president obama won't do anything before the red line. so the syrian government can keep on murdering people using conventional weapons and they'll get away with it. obama just said i'm not going to invade or do anything. >> i do want to touch on egypt as well, which has had significant developments, and also begs the question of what the
club at the white house. is the country ready for hillary clinton to be the first female president? our political insiders are back. what about michelle obama? why is it that the most impressive technology often comes with a set of equally impressive instructions ? shouldn't something that's truly advanced, not need much explanation at all ? with the nokia lumia 822 on verizon, there's not much to learn because it's powered by windows... to let you do more than you ever imagined on your smartphone. exclusively with data sense-- a feature that makes the most of your plan. only on verizon. avoid bad.fats. don't go over 2000... 1200 calories a day. carbs are bad. carbs are good. the story keeps changing. so i'm not listening... to anyone but myself. i know better nutrition when i see it: great grains. great grains cereal starts whole and stays whole. see the seam? more processed flakes look nothing like naturalrains. you can't argue with nutrition you can see. great grains. search great grains and see for yourself. for multi grain flakes tt are anxcellent source of fiber try great grains b
. >> and president obama was a strong advocate on the second amendment and as you know, illinois has the most, i believe, unconstitutional laws in the country. they don't allow any right to bear arms and before the debate he said he wanted to pursue the so-called assault weapons ban. fbi law enforcement says it doesn't reduce crime. we don't need it anymore, it bans guns that look scary and the president wants to renew that and also said that he was going to, was supporting a u.n. treaty on arms, which just hours after he was elected and at the united nations signed and that dnot rep and bear arms and the united states would be signing on to a worldwide treaty with countries like syria and iran, in which would water down our right to bare arms. >> i noticed there was a spike in gun sales after the election, why is that? >> well, because of those things and president obama's history and the first term of regulations and executive orders, things like that to try to restrict guns, so, people are want to get guns and may be restricted and worried about government having guns and they reported that b
